Traffic Enforcement: Man vs. Machine

It seems quite possible that the S.E.P.D. has already implemented a more desirable method for identifying and ticketing errant motorists than traffic cameras. It will be unfortunate if City Council refuses to allow the motorcycle officers and Chief Nietert adequate time to make an informed judgment, as to whether the occasion for cameras is still warranted.

They better start writing a helluva lot more tickets to pay for the $20,000 Harley.

Did South Euclid somehow avoid the recession the rest of the country has been in? Where did that 20G come from?

It's quite possible that the Harley was puchaased in lieu of a car. Even if it wasn't, given the current population, the cost of the cycle comes to about $1 per person in South Euclid.

But let's do some quick calculations for the penny pinchers: The two officers state they wrote an average of 154.5 tickets over a four month period, 35.5 more than when using a car. At a low estimate of $50 per ticket, that's bringing in $5,325 in additional revenue per year, which means the bike pays for itself in less than four years.

Let's also look at the bigger picture: If the area is known for enforcing speed laws, that means fewer accidents over time - which means lower costs and a safer neighborhood. By being more in the open than in a car, it also brings the officers in closer contact with the citizens, and discourages ne'er do wells.

The purchase and use of this bike is a good thing.

WHOA NELLY,I TAKE ISSUE WITH BOTH OF MY FELLOW CITIZENS....
FIRST OFF,THAT "POLICE HARLEY" FULLY OUTFITTED,PROBABLY
COSTS WELL OVER 20 GRAND,BUT I WON'T ARGUE THAT POINT.
LET'S ALSO NOT FORGET THAT WE LIVE IN THE SNOW BELT,THE GREAT WHITE NORTH.THESE BIKES,WHILE I AGREE, ARE A GREAT ASSET TO OUR COMMUNITY,AND REALLY DO BRING THESE OFFICERS CLOSE TO,AND GIVE OUR KIDS A HERO OF SORTS TO ADMIRE AND RESPECT,ARE GOING TO BE IN THE GARAGE FOR MOST OF THE YEAR.
AND GET THIS,YES WE SHOULD HAVE THEM ON THE ROAD.AND WE SHOULD HAVE COPS ON BICYCLES,AND COPS IN MINI COOPERS,AND COPS ON MOPEDS,AND COPS WALKING THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED "BEAT",AND MAYBE COPS ON SNOWMOBILES.
AS MANY COPS AS IT TAKES TO MAKE OUR COMMUNITY SAFE FOR BUSINESS,RESIDENTS,AND VISITORS.AS MANY COPS AS IT TAKES TO RID OUR COMMUNITY OF THE THUGS,RIF-RAF,BAD PARENTS WITH EQUALLY BAD OFFSPRING....RADICAL?

ENFORCING THE LAWS THAT HAVE BEEN ENACTED TO CREATE A SAFE LAW ABIDING SOCIETY,IS WHY WE HAVE THE POLICE,THE SHERIFFS,THE FBI,THE SECRET SERVICE,THE DEA,ETC.,ETC,.
WE PLACE THIS RESPONSIBILITY ON THEM,AND MUST BE COMMITTED TO GIVNG THEM EVERY TOOL AVAILABLE FOR THEM TO PERFORM THIS TASK,AND GIVE THEM OUR TRUST,AND GIVE OURSELVES THE OVERSIGHT TO WATCH FOR ANY ABUSE OF THESE RESPONSIBILITIES.

A yeah, Anonymous #2 as far as the whole "closer contact with citizens" thing......have you seen the new cop car(s?) with windows so dark that nothing can be seen other than black glass. The Darth Vadar look will end up doing more harm then good.
